Tobacco
    #937004 - 10/06/02 06:38 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

So a woman was awarded $20 million because she was dumb enough to believe the tobacco companies when they told her that cigarettes don't cause cancer....


They should just force the tobacco companies to put like $20 billion into health care for being such dicks.

Sure,they should also make McDonald's start a 20 billion dollar health care fund, because they make folks get fat. Come on now ,everyone knew cigarettes were bad. Thats like saying " I ate the rat poison because they said it wasn't harmful"
they should of made the woman pay $1000 for making such a jackassed claim

Cigarettes should be made illegal. If people can't smoke herb, than people shouldn't be able to smoke cigarettes. Cigarettes are more harmful to your health than smoking marijuana because of all the fucking additives they put in them. Plus the fact that cigarettes are so addictive. I only smoked cigarettes for 5 years and it has been one of the hardest addictions I have had to kick. :mad:

Actually, the last one was 28 billion (with a "B") dollars in LA. The real question is what jury is so stupid as to believe that somebody doesn't know this by now?

In fact, testimony showed that she had been warned repeatedly by her doctors over more than 40 years about health hazards. I can't find myself buying in any way, shape, or form that she didn't know what might happen

This lawyer has doccuments which show a cover up by the Philip Moris corp about the health hazards of smoking 20 years ago.. They really did know beyond doubt that this was a health hazard and stood up against any regulation and warning lables. They lied to Grand Jurrys and frauded the American people. For this they should pay for all the sick.

Plus doccuments show that they have added HIGHLY dangerous cancer causing agents to their cigaretts to make the smoke less harsh, more pallatable and above all HIGHLY addictive.

Anyone ever see that movie, The Insider?

Yeah, I was going to post 28 billion but I couldn't find an article on it at the time so I figured I'd heard wrong. Insanity.

And to the guy who said we should make cigarettes illegal, you're a moron.

I heard in the 1970's they used emboming fluid to add a slight high to the marlboro cigs.

Tobacco really isn't all that cancerous, they purposely put shit in it to give you cancer! Look it up!

And its a commen fact that they add a shit load of other chemicals to cigs, of WHATEVER reason, that it shouldn't be there.

Stupid.

Embalming fluid won't get you high.
No, it won't.
Some people call PCP embalming fluid. PCP will get you high, but it's not embalming fluid. Really.

No, they don't add shit to cigarettes to give you cancer, that's the most retarded thing I've ever heard. What possible reason would they have for doing that? They add some things to the tobacco for various reasons, and some of those things happen to be carcinogenic, but they don't do so to make cigarettes more dangerous.


"Tobacco really isn't all that cancerous"
More stupidity. Smoking anything floods your lungs with tars and carcinogens.
"Look it up!"

Supposedly the south american indians who smoke natural tobacco in huge quantities don't get cancer. Whether that's down to the tobacco or some other factor in the lifestyles no-one is too sure.

That's definately bullshit.

Cancer is everywhere. There is not one form of multicelled life on the planet that is not subject to cancer.

No, tobacco abuse is bad for you.

Easy down phluck. There's some reason why the native americans and south americans who used large amounts of tobacco never got cancer.

Perhaps the fact that they A) didn't have staticians, and B) the fact that they didn't know what cancer was led to no recorded cases of cancer.

I don't think what you're saying is true at all. Could you back it up with anything? I tried to look it up, but I couldn't find anything.

I think the risk of cancer may be slightly less if someone were to smoke 100% organic, pure tobacco, vs. whatever the hell they put in smokes today. However slight that risk I am not sure. Neither are beneficial towards anybody's health in anyway.
